SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Sept. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raven Industries (Nasdaq:RAVN) is excited to introduce the Envizio Pro XL™ as their newest addition to an industry-leading field computer lineup! The Envizio Pro XL will enhance a user's experience through its brilliant, extra-large 10.4" color touchscreen display. It operates on the proven and reliable Envizio™ operating system which features language support for customers in the many global markets Raven serves, and growers will benefit from the simple-to-use interface, multi-product control and VRA capabilities. The Envizio Pro XL field computer is the perfect controller for Raven's advanced product lineup such as Slingshot®, SmartYield™, SmarTrax™, OmniRow® or OmniSeed™. "Some of our customers have given us feedback that they really like the simple-to-use interface of the Envizio Pro and Envizio Pro II field computers, but would like to see it on a larger display. The Envizio Pro XL allows them to do just that by utilizing the same operating system on a bigger screen, which will enhance their experience when using products like our OmniRow advanced planter control system, or OmniSeed advanced air-seeder control system," says Matt Burkhart, Raven Applied Technology Division vice president and general manager. The Envizio Pro XL will be featured at upcoming farm shows in the US and Canada and will be available for purchase September 15, 2012 with shipments in early 2013.
